Quote from Max Lucado’s fabulous book called “Morning and Evening Devotional Journal. Grace for the Moment by Max Lucado.”
I created the image below after having my piano tuned again last night.
This morning, when I was saying my daily prayers, readings and meditations I came across the quote that was just made for the picture that I created last night it is almost as though God directed me to that passage so I can put the two together.
What actions can you do here on earth that will play music on the keyboard of heaven?

I bought 20 beautiful large paperwhites about a month ago, and due to all the terrible weather events we had all over the world, they were delayed in the shipment. I contacted the people that I bought them from and one of the managers contacted me back and they were sent priority mail the next day.
Even though it’s Autumn here in Las Vegas, Nevada with very few if any fall leaves to be seen, I’m going to be creating “Springtime in Autumn” by forcing paperwhites indoors.
Bulbs are so easy to work with and you can keep them going for years. They’re awesome for a beginning gardener. Usually just plant them about 1/2 to 3 times deep of what the bulb size is; the planting directions will tell you.
Years ago in my first house in Sandy Utah, when I was married to the rocket scientist, Mark”s sweet and very generous grandmother Hazel Griffin sent us several hundred dollars worth of bulbs and I had fun playing them all over the yard in around the bhouse.
I kept those orchids going for many years after and they were absolutely gorgeous. There were jumbo gladiolus and red and yellow and tulips, because we got snow in Sandy, Utah which was 20 minutes away from Salt Lake City. It was just awesome living there. I wouldn’t do it now because of the high amount of snow Utah gets. it’s great we can have a guy cleaning the driveway, and when you’re driving in a car everywhere you go. But for me who walks and uses lift and gets around a myriad of ways, it wouldn’t be logistically smart. but I will always remember the extraordinary Panorama mountains and how it look like a painting, how clear it was from where we lived by the Wasatch mountains off to see the Capitol building we could see as clear as day. I would say that Sandy Utah Salt Lake City is the opposite of Las Vegas Nevada. They’re people with their doors open and as long as you were good people they were good to you. Here we have a high crime rate high fraud rate there’s weirdos and goofballs and drunks all over the place it’s the opposite of what that place was, and what many places are I like my place here and it is cheaper to live but there’s prices you pay for that.
Utah was beautiful country and that the Mormon people were so awesome so kind so nice because I learned all about there and even though I didn’t believe what they did we respected one another . I wish more people thought like that . You don’t have to agree with everybody just need to respect their viewpoints and their beliefs.
Around Christmas time at The Visitor Center, they spent about three months every year wiring lights all around Visitor Center it was absolutely gorgeous.
Back to the bulbs, you can keep bulbs going for years just by taking them out, if you live in an area where you can do daffodils outside, like I used to in Southern California, I naturalized them outdoors and my last house in Orange California with the now ex and, I had crocus coming up ‘the first to come up in the spring time and daffodils.
I love growing things this is the first place that I’ve had where I could actually do that and think of growing things once I learned how to do it here in the terribly hot southwest desert.
I hope that by airing this video and buy me writing this, you’ll think of creating “Springtime at Autumn” where you live, and adding joy to your desk or your window sill by planting some really beautiful paperwhites
I ordered these around my birthday August 31st, which was the time they recommend to plant these. But, if you plant them (force them) indoors, you can have these going all year.
It’s kind of like having Springtime in your window sill are on your desk, which is what I’ll be having in about 2 weeks once I plant them.
I have everything but the little glass planter that you need to do these and gravel hydroponically.
I’m soon getting ready to head for church but I wanted to air this.
As I learn the world learns with me, and that’s just one of the cool thing about having a blog that’s read all over the world.
God bless you all.
If you’re Mormon, Muslim, Jewish, Agnostic, Atheist, Buddhist, and any other Christian faith, or don’t know what you believe, I bless you anyway and I hope that only good comes to you in every way.
We’re all the same on this planet and it really doesn’t matter. What matters is how you act and how you treat people it’s not the name your faith and it’s not how many times you go to church.
None of that matters what matters is who you are, what you do and what you bring to the world and what you want to leave the world as because you were in it.

….not to mention the incredible CGI animation crew that it took to choreograph and create this production.
Turn your magic on.
Everything you want is a dream away.
Under this pressure, this weight-
We are diamonds.
I feel my heart beating….
Cuz you make me feel-like I’m alive again.
Awesome and deep words with a lot of meaning.

I would have more followers but I hear there’s no “follow me” button. I will be working on enhancing the features on the site to make that possible.
The great news is that my followers are tried-and-true, they are genuine, they are intelligent extraordinary individuals whose talents even defy my own comprehension at times. What I envisioned when I created this site in 2012 has become literal reality that is even superseded what my vision was of the best for the site. Every follower every reader has come back like a magnet attrated for all the right reasons -because I am genuine and as what am I long-standing Facebook friends Maria Lourdes Lipardo told me-“you are so transparent”. At the time she said it I didn’t quite know what that meant. Now years later I call it a high compliment.
The world is full of far too many Yes Men comply or go along with a crowd. I’ve never been that kind of person I always have been an individualist.
Because I was misunderstood as a child, I am the quickest to try and understand others, and another person’s point of view. Matters to me to understand communication is Paramount. Just as I was telling a nice lady at the station casino Grand Cafe earlier last night:
We’re all connected on the planet no matter what race color creed. It really doesn’t matter what our faith is but that we believe in something greater than ourselves we treat others with dignity. We don’t need to be like one another, life would be boring if we were. We can learn from each other’s differences and grow as people.
The sun is coming up here in Las Vegas now when I can see the white flowers on the huge Bush surrounding my picture windows blooming. I live upstairs and like it because I’m the one making the noise and its private and I can have a garden on my balcony and go out there anytime and be in my “desert oasis” I created over time.
As I was looking at my statistics here I noticed the atlas of the world filling in with the readership from Canada and many other countries that never read my blog prior.
Makes me a really feel gratified to know that the many hours that I invest in this site is appealing to all people and has become quite universal.
Thank you for all your contributions and comments app for putting a smile on my face everyday.
May every single person who reads this be blessed.

Tell why you like it and why you would recommend it to someone else.
If it’s a fiction story, try and tell people why they should read it without giving away the story.
Pictured are just a few of my favorite books I turn to often.

Here’s a note about the sparking American flag I used in the photo here….
It is one of my grandmother’s cherished pins she used to wear. She was my mother’s mother and singlehandedly raised her children on her own due to my grandfather James Hubert Hart dying of spinal meningitis when my mother was four years old.
Mom said the day that she finally realized that she was alive was the day she overheard someone talking about who is getting all the kids, and what houses they were all going to because Grandma couldn’t afford to take care of them all herself.
Grandma wasn’t afraid to take a man’s job in a time when it was was very unpopular for a woman to rivet airplanes -but she did.
There wasn’t anything that could stop my grandmother Ruby Hart.
She was proud to be an American citizen and so appreciative of everything that you ever did for her— just like my mother.
That’s why when she had Alzheimer’s disease-like my mother had, untiL she touched the face of God nearly a year ago I didn’t think anything of helping taking care of her.
I bought her big print Readers Digest books to encourage her to talk and keep her mind active…and they did.
She read one of them every day … so I bought more for her and she smiled as she read each story.
I found them at local libraries and we would talk about the stories in each story, which would inspire her to tell me about her life recalling memories of when she was younger.
I don’t have a digital image of Grandma-yet’ but I’ll create one for this story I didn’t know I was going to write, until writing the first sentence!
I know we have our trouble in America, but when you compare us to other countries- it’s pretty damn nice country anyway you look at it. We have precious freedoms another country can match.
I didn’t say God Bless America because I wanted everyone no matter who they were to be able to relate to the image and the meaning behind image.
I’m Christian so I’ll always say God Bless America, but as an empowered lady I would love to see all of us all over the world worry less about religion & culture and focus more about just treating each other kindly and know everyone has a right to believe what they feel strongly about.
As long as they are not hurting you or anyone then let him believe it if they find solace and peace through it.
Uniting as living, breathing people who have the power to good-is my dream for not only America but for the world.
